Mirror LCD TV Review Conclusions
The concept of a " Magic Mirror" LCD TV is still fairly new and carries with it an inherent "wow" factor. The ad notam Box TV 30.0 delivers on that with a pristine system that really impresses. When off it is truly invisible, and when it turns on the image appears to be near the very front of the mirror surface. This is a device that could use some additional features and improvements, however it also directly serves a purpose that gives it some leeway in terms of what is demanded of it. Watching cable television in the bathroom to get the morning news and weather is what I would love to use this for - not replacing my main home theater display. The most obvious flaw of this unit has got to be its retail price which, considering the current plummeting prices of 26-32" LCD TVs, we feel to be almost comically too high. We are glad ad notam is moving ahead with this progressive technology and we look forward to seeing the future, and hopefully more economical, iterations that evolve as the company enters new markets and presses onward with additional and improved products.
